en Limba Engleză Paperback – October 2016
Beautifully crafted stories from one of our most honored authors ("The New York Times"), Ron Hansen s "She Loves Me Not" is an acclaimed collection of stunning fiction, three decades in the writing.
Ron Hansen has long been celebrated as a master of both the novel and the short form. His stories have been called extraordinary ("The New York Times Book Review") and wise and smart ("The Washington Post").
In "She Loves Me Not," the subjects of Hansen s scrutiny range from Oscar Wilde to murder to dementia to romance, and display Hansen at his storytelling best: These are unforgettable stories, each utterly different from the one before .This is writing that slows the breathing ("San Francisco Chronicle"). Readers will thrill to Hansen s masterful attention to the smallest and most telling details, even as he plunges straight into the deepest recesses of desire, love, fury, and loss. Magisterial in its scope and surprising in its variety, "She Loves Me Not "shows an author at the height of his powers and confirms Hansen s place as a major American writer. This breathtaking collection should put him on the short-story map ("USA TODAY").
"She Loves Me Not" contains an excerpt from Hansen s new novel, "The Kid," to be published in fall, 2016."

Starred Review. "Hansen turns out to be at his best when he's free from the tent poles of plot, precedent, or even character. He deserves a collection like this to give readers the full vent of the desolation that lurches out of his landscapes and blows like a cold wind into the lives of his hapless Americans." - Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. "This collection extends the boundaries of the short story form while remaining centered on Nebraska and the human experience; enthusiastically recommended for all readers." - Library Journal
"In these pages, Nebraska - Omaha in particular - is both rendered and reappropriated, registered and riffed on through a range of tonalities." - The New York Times
"Although Hansen's historical re-creations will transport you, and his black humor is worthy of a Coen brothers movie, he is at his best when writing about what Wordsworth called "the still, sad music of humanity," such as the story of a woman caring for her Alzheimer's-inflicted husband ("The Sleepwalker"), or the boy struggling to understand his mother's death ("The Sparrow"). These stories, truthful meditations on the motions of grace in the physical world, are the real gems of the collection." - The Star Tribune
“Rich in imagery and emotion...the collection confirms Hansen as a top-notch master of the short form.” - People Magazine
